Ford’s second Flex concept for the 2007 SEMA Show (see the first one here) was penned by Funkmaster Flex. The designer supports that he has handed a sense of urban luxury to Ford’s new crossover –whatever that means. Dubbed Flex2, the concept features the same “Land Rover” styled fascia, a nice Brandywine body color combined with a faux-brushed aluminium roof and 22-inch forged alloy wheels. Inside, the Flex2 is fitted with custom seat covers with alligator print inserts and stainless steel color stitching on the seats and interior along with a high-end entertainment system. -Details and pics after the jump
Press Release: Flex2 designed by Funkmaster Flex
Hip Hop guru of car customization Funkmaster Flex brings his vision of urban luxury to Ford’s newest crossover with the Flex2. His signature two-tone paint scheme is integrated cleverly into the Flex2 through a House of Kolor Kandy custom paint job that features a Brandywine body color and a unique faux-brushed aluminum roof. Flex2’s exterior design is further enhanced by custom 3dCarbon accents including fender vents, upper and lower grilles and a rear upper spoiler.
The all-black leather interior features Katzkin custom seat covers with alligator print inserts and stainless steel color stitching on the seats and interior trim. To keep the party going inside the vehicle, Funkmaster Flex added two Invision headrest-mounted DVD systems in the first and second rows, along with a JL Audio 12-inch subwoofer and amplifier to enhance the tunes.
Flex2 rolls on custom 22-inch NC Forged wheels and Cooper Zeon XST tires. With a 1-inch lowered suspension and Borla dual rolled exhaust tips, Flex2 is an urban legend in the making.
“I know what this vehicle is going to be in the urban market: It’s going to be killer!” says Funkmaster Flex. “Whether you’re flossin’ with your friends, going to the club or riding around with your girl, the Ford Flex is the next urban street vehicle, and Flex2 is my interpretation of the ultimate in street luxury.”
